Welcome to all of the new year 7s in Phoenix house this year! They have all settled in well and it was lovely to get to meet so many of the new parents at our settling in evening.
We also have a new student leadership team this year. Our Captains are Charlotte Ainge and Ella Thomas. They are supported by our Vice-Captains Evelyn Farrow, Elsbeth Wesson, Stephen Parry and Harry Sandilands. They have taken ownership of their roles brilliantly. Charlotte and Ella are working hard to sort out teams for inter-form competitions and the vice-captains are doing really well checking with the different forms to ensure house time runs smoothly!
All of the students have made a brilliant start to the year, have welcomed in their new additions both in year 7 and other year groups, are are working well to maintain the spirit of the house. I am sure this year will be as positive for Phoenix house as las year was!
Phoenix are still at the top of their game! A big congratulations to PH3 for winning the inter form quiz and Ph2 on their excellent attendance of 98.2%. This week the forms will be taking part in another inter form competition involving their teamwork skills and communication, in a basketball shooting game where the most baskets wins. The past week it was Pancake Day and our Head of House, Miss Turner, did an assembly on the history of the magical day and sent the forms away from it with a fun challenge to create a pancake with any topping of their choice and use their creative minds to create the best pancake EVER! We look forward to seeing what more Phoenix can achieve in the coming weeks.
Signing off, your Phoenix House Captains.
